I never thought of including other troops in the drive. That is an excellent idea!!!-
We are planning the food drive in conjunction with Girl Scout week.

Just make sure reminders go out so that they remember. That's always my biggest pet peeve, hearing "I forgot" Do they get a patch for donating? Sometimes that's a lot of motivation. Is it a bunch of troops bringing supplies? You could have them leave their names and troop #s in case you are going to recognize them.

If you got a traffic ticket would you break every traffic law the rest of the day? Then why toss the whole day over a slice of pizza? ~Indygirl

For Girl Scout Week I think we will have a food drive for the local Animal Shelter.- We will use the Methodist Church we meet at as a "drop off point." Any sugguestions on how to run the project?

Our troop collected canned goods plus ran laps for pledges, and then we delivered the money and the food items to the local food pantry.

No one can make you feel any particular way, good or bad........ unless you let them.

We went caroling for 4H and I loved it. I'm not sure if the kids like it or not. But I enjoyed it and the residents loved it. They did a cookie exchange afterwards, which I think is why most of them agree to caroling. We were suppose to carol for GS but crummy weather.

Gotta love Ebay!

Thought I'd give an update on our Xmas service project. The assisted living residents really enjoyed our caroling, they even sang along. You would have thought the macaroni angels were treasures. I think what they enjoyed most was when I had each of the girls introduce themselves and tell one thing they wanted Santa to bring them the most. Of course, the big surprise came from my daughter who said "A My Twinn doll lamp". Well, I was pretty sure Santa missed that one . . . eBay and $20 of shipping for a $13 dollar item and Santa will be looking good. emoticon

One day at a time . . .

We are going March 1st in a lodge at camp.

She is going to do etiquette, history, ceremonies, we hope to have a flag retirment, depending on weather. Learn the pledge in sign language.

Crafts:
Sequis flags magnets
Safety pin flag pins
Soup can flags-cut off top and bottom of can. Cut down a side. Lay flat. Fold over ends so not sharp. Paint flag on the can. Use wire as a hanger. add a raffia bow.
They are going to paint on those flat marbles. Red white blue. Add a tack pin back.
Maybe memory wire bracelets.

She will also let them decorate thier own flag cookies.

For food she is going to do squares of red and blue jello with cool whip. White cup cakes that have red & blue food coloring. So they are layered colors. They are going to make R W B salt water taffy.

We don't really have any games. She should find some in case we need filler. That's a cheap way to add activities.

Our service unit was suppose to go caroling, but the weather didn't cooperate.

My daughter is planning her SIlver Award. She is going to have an overnighter at our camp and bridge a troop. She is going to have a Flag theme. She will give them the history of the flag, etiquette and how to retire a flag. She will have flag crafts and flag sugar cookies. It should be fun. She had some great ideas.

For our Christmas party this year, we are going caroling at an assisted living facility. At our last meeting, we made macaroni angels to give to the folks there. Afterwards, we are using their meeting room to have our gift exchange among the girls. Should be a fun evening.

That was a wonderful idea then. Maybe continue to do simple service projects for him/her through the year.

Our girls want to do the humane society, but they have to be older to have contact with the animals. That discourages them.

I was just curious what other troops are doing.
I think it' good to exchange or share ideas, and learn from each other and support each other..
This year will go caroling at the local nursing home.
And later in the year we will work with Humane society.- ( not really sure what we will be doing for that one)- but the girls are really excited..

Last year we shipped cookies to a service man who is the father of one of the girls in our troop. It was a huge sucess..!! It was epecially positive for the girl scout. She was struggling, with her dad being over seas and all... She would dwell on it constantly at meeting, sadly to the point of being annoying.- but through this project she seem to blossom. it was extremely postive for all involved.

Our girls are cadettes and every Intrest Project requieres a service project. We make some simple and we make some tougher.
We have donated food and supplies to an animal shelter, they loved making cut out dog treats for a shelter.
Toys for Tots
Caroling
food drive
Mitten drive
helping with fundraiser walks.
Volunteer to work with younger girls....attend a daisy fun day or plan one. Attend a meeting for younger girls. Help a younger troop do bridging activities.
Plant flowers for habitat for humanity.
Make greeting cards for nursing homes.
Snack drive for soldiers overseas.
I had a group of girls plan a career fair for other scouts to attend as a requirment for the Silver award.

Most were successful. Sometimes for the drives they need a reminder to bring stuff.

Let me know if you need more ideas or want me to expand on any. How big of a service project are you looking for?
